Hi, my name's Sammy and I'm the Editor of Simply Prizes magazine. Every week I'll be bringing you an update or two about any interesting competitions I find or any comping news. Plus I'll bring you any competitions or offers I find.

Pokemon Go crazy?


I’ve not quite caught on to the whole Pokémon Go craze yet but for those of you addicted to it then take a look at this comp!


Ripleys Believe It Or Not have launched the #RipleysGo contest for Pokémon Go players. Whoever catches the rarest Pokémon character at Ripleys will win a cool $5000! Now this is running internationally but if you’ve got the app on your phone and you’re visiting the attraction you’d be silly not to enter.


On top of the main prize of $5000 there are also daily prizes of $100 to one random winner.


So, how do you enter?


  • Take a screen shot of you catching a Pokémon at or inside a U.S., Canada, UK, or Australia Ripley’s attraction.
  • Screenshot must be taken in the Augmented Reality (AR) mode and must include a recognizable element of the location.
  • Upload a photo to Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #RipleysGo.


The promotion started on July 15th and is only running until 24th July so be quick!


Good luck!
